  • companyweb migration issue (SBS 2003 -> SBS 2008)

    I'm trying to migrate from a SBS 2003 to SBS 2008.

    I am following this Mircrosoft document :

    Everything has gone smoothly up to the importing of OldCompanyWeb into the existing companyweb.

    Prescan completes with no errors.

    stsadm -o export -url http://OldCompanyWeb -filename cweb.bak -includeusersecurity completes with no errors

    [6/14/2010 12:09:49 PM]: Progress: Export Completed.
    [6/14/2010 12:09:49 PM]: Finish Time: 6/14/2010 12:09:49 PM.
    [6/14/2010 12:09:49 PM]: Completed with 0 warnings.
    [6/14/2010 12:09:49 PM]: Completed with 0 errors.

    Though I do notice the following in the log file :

    [6/14/2010 12:09:10 PM]: Debug: Security check failed in OnListItemExport

    The actual site http://OldCompanyWeb looks and runs just fine

    When issuing the stsadm -o import -url http://companyweb -filename cweb.bak -includeusersecurity I get the following errors

    Multiple instances of :
    [6/14/2010 1:30:09 PM]: Debug: Security check failed in OnUserGroupExport

    and at the end

    Looking at http://companyweb it looks pretty similar but there are quite a few problems. The employee holiday calendar has multiple instances of the same event, as do some of the other lists.

    I suspect this may be because I have attempted to import the same data more than once.

    How can I

    a) troubleshoot these error messages and remove all the duplicate instances or
    b) just completey overwrite the existing companyweb with OldCompanyWeb

    Many thanks

    Problem was I was using a newly created account rather than a pre existing account.

    Logged on as another user - import issues went away.

    Now to dedupe the db
